Association Roundup: Youth fundraisers, awards and Jr. Nationals

An American Angus Auxiliary fundraising tradition will return this summer after a nearly 15-year hiatus. The Auxiliary’s heifer auction at the All-American Angus Breeders’ Futurity June 19 in Louisville, KY, will raise money toward the organization’s youth scholarship fund.

Heifer donors Jim and Ardyce O’Neill of O’Neill Angus Farm, Logan, IA, said it was time to reinstate the auction tradition that first began in 1958.

The top-quality heifer, O’Neill’s Eraline 259 (reg. no. 16717542), is sired by SAV Final Answer 0035. Both the heifer and her dam combine two noted O’Neill cow families – the Delias and the Eralines – which were purchased in 1951 when O’Neill Angus Farm was founded.

The heifer auction provides added meaning for the O’Neills. The Iowa couple is donating the heifer in honor of their daughter, Debra Ellen O’Neill, a former scholarship recipient and showman prior to her death in 2003.

Proceeds from the sale of this heifer will go toward the Auxiliary Scholarship Fund, which is administered through the Angus Foundation.

For more information about the heifer, contact O’Neill Angus Farm at 712-644-2062 or go online at onlangus@longlines.com.
